In partnership with the Lewa Digital Education Program, Land & Life is very excited to have started the new digital literacy training program. The Government of Kenya’s amazing provision of tablets to primary schools across the country has been rolled out and now we have been able to help some of the schools get started with using them.
The first school to benefit has been Esiteti Primary in Amboseli. There two trainers from Lewa arrived with Steve from Land & Life and conducted a two day training session with both students and teachers. Everyone was shown how to use the tablets and access the resources provided by the Government and the teachers were trained on teaching entire lessons with the tablets. It was a hugely successful event and we look forward to repeating the training at our other Wildlife Warrior Schools.
The next step at Esiteti is to be the purchase of an Annotator device which will allow the teachers to utilise the interactive whiteboard feature in class. We are also purchasing a wifi router to provide the school, for the first time, with access to the internet.
This will also have the added benefit of letting the Lewa training team conduct updates and further training remotely.
